A problem with search

#1 Post by Eriorg » Fri Nov 20, 2015 6:47 pm

I've just noticed (I don't know if this problem has already been talked about) that if I search the database for "A Mind Forever Voyaging", there's no result at all: you must write "Mind Forever Voyaging" without the article to have a result.

I guess it's because the title in the database is actually "Mind Forever Voyaging, A", but still, I feel the search with the article should return a result! There's the same problem with the definite article: "The Pawn" gives no result but "Pawn" works. There's also the same problem with articles in non-English languages, apparently.

I'm surprised. Jacob, didn't we have a list of "article words" in some configuration file? I can't find it anymore.

I seem to recall so, yes - I'll look into it.
